Message from Superintendent Dr. Ben Drati: Campus Safety
May 23, 2018 - Dear parents, guardians, staff and community members,

Sadly, this last week brought us another horrific school shooting, this time in the Houston Texas area. Our hearts and thoughts go out to the families of Santa Fe High School.

We understand that school safety is on the minds of students, parents, staff and community members. It is on our minds, as well. We have safety plans in place at each of our schools, that we consistently review, evaluate and practice. More >
